in power so, for example, in egypt you had mubarak, very much aligned with u.s. and israeli interests. he was willing to turn a blind eye to israeli aggressions as they described it in gaza so long as he could secure the support of the u.s. and israel. you is a very different dynamic now and why this is also a very big test to egypt, to its credit, america is allowing egypt to immediate this and so far, egyptian officials say they are not [ inaudible ] a peace treaty with israel. president morsi says he's committed to the international obligations but he's also using his leverage to perhaps rein in hamas. it's not necessarily that hamas feels empowered but now perhaps egypt's president is saying to hamas you also have a responsibility to govern, you can't just fire these rockets indiscriminately and trigger this type of backlash. this isn't only a crossroads for israel and gaza, it has a tremendous amount of implications for egypt and u.s. foreign policy vis-a-vis the new emerging realities of the arab world. >> i want to open this up to our panel in new york. something that has been goin
week before house lawmakers concerning the deadly attack on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. molly henneberg is live in washington with the very latest on this story. >> molly: now that he stepped down, general david petraeus will not testify this up coming week at house and senate intelligence xheet committee hearings investigating the benghazi. some on capitol hill they do want to hear from him in the future. >> i hope we don't have to subpoena a four-star general and former c.i.a. director. i hope he would come voluntarily. if he won't, he will be subpoenaed. >> molly: petraeus who had been in charge of the c.i.a. since september 2011 has said the attack was in response to a protest over an anti-islam video. one g.o.p. congressman is asking questions about the timing of his departure. >> it comes days before he is set to testify before the house intelligence committee. it really begs the question what did the f.b.i. know and whether did they know it? how long did they sit on the information? i recall that petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have t
and outline the next steps i will take. as background, puerto rico has been a u.s. territory since 1898. the island is home to 3.7 million american citizens who cannot vote for president, are not represented in the senate, and elect a nonvoting member to the house. federal law is supreme in puerto rico but its residents are treated unequally under many federal programs. voters were first asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. over 1.7 million people answered. which is about 75% of registered voters on the island. 54% said they did not want the current status to continue while 46% said they did. voters were then asked to express their preference among the three viable alternatives to the current status. statehood, free association and independence. over 1.3 million people chose an option. 61% voted for statehood. 33% voted for free association. and 5.5% voted for independence. in addition, 472,000 voters did not provide an answer. this marked the first time voters were directly asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. one of the two main political pa
committee. another candidate the president's national security adviser tom domilan and u.s. am bass kor susan rice who may some controversial to republicans because she was the obama's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence information about benghazi attack. treasury, the top candidate to replace geithner is jack lew who has served as the president's budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and might look elsewhere. a bunch of names have bethrown there. mark warner, erkine bowles. at the pentagon, leon panetta's departure probably won't after until after spring. but some think that michelle will be the first ever woman to head the pentagon. and then in the senate, rhode island senator jack reed, and john kerry, the man who talked bob gates into staying at defense in the beginning of the president's first term. and then there's john kerry and some thought there if rice gets stayed, they still would want to put kerry in the cabinet somewhere. and then there's attorney general eric holder. long time target of conservatives. he said he's undecide
at the president, the news media and each other. tempers flare as congress probes the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. you're about to hear a tape of senator john mccain's contentious exchange with cnn. also, we've seen pictures like this of the benghazi compound on september 11th, but today for the first time lawmakers are seeing surveillance video of the assault that killed the united states ambassador, three other americans. i'll talk to one u.s. senator about what that video shows. and mitt romney's speaking out about his election loss blaming what he calls gifts -- that's a quote, gifts, the president people gave to people who voted for him. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> tempers flaring on capitol hill. senator john mccain lashing out at one of our cnn producers who questioned why he was missing a key hearing on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. mccain has been a sharp critic of the president and his administration complaining lawmakers are not getting enough information. and when asked why he missed that meeting today, he
. meanwhile, u.s. officials moving to deescalate the rising violence, advising israel not to enter gaza, fearing it could draw egypt in to that consulate. and joining us the consulate general, good to see you ambassador. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: the latest what we just said. benjamin netanyahu told the cabinet he's ready to significantly be expand its operation in gaza. is israel prepared for a ground invasion into gaza and what could incite that? >> look the mandate from the inception was to remove this strategic threat posed by thousands of rockets on israelis-- innocent israelis paralyzing our entire southern region. so the goal was to remove that threat and the mandate given to the defense forces from the government was not limited in time nor in scope. so in other words, the possibility of israel moving in with ground forces certainly exists, it depends how the operation develops on the ground. right now, hamas is firing rockets. hamas is still displaying a tremendous degree of aggression towards israel and the purpose of this operation is to eliminate that threat. >> m

the time about what we are going to find wasteful spending. this is a chart, the u.s. debt clock, and viewers can see it, you can look into the cameras with viewers. the u.s. national debt, $16 trillion and counting. also, as you look at that, you look at $3.5 trillion in spending this last fiscal year. you talk about programs you can cut, but it is clear the three biggest drivers are medicare, social security, and defense, six out of 10 federal dollars. what are the tough choices that you are willing to make when it comes to prioritizing cuts in benefits or defense, because it is clear that the only three areas you can make substantive differences, and for the tea party, the people who put you in office, state how you would make the tough choices. where do you cut? >> you included the overseas contingency operations. now we are now out of iraq, that does not count. my opponent said he would not support. cut the defense budget over the next 10 years. it is the sequestration that i am against. 62% of the budget is net interest on the debt. one of the things, stop with a payroll ta
from carrying fuel between u.s. ports. that should help. but the white house said there is been no decision whether to release oil from strategic reserves. johnathan hunt is live bay bridge, brooklyn tonight. if the tankers are on the way, how long until the fuel gets to the people who need? >> it's still going to be some time. whatever officials say about the help being on the way. the problem here is that new york harbor where i'm standing right now has been closed for the very good reason that they were very worried about the sort of debris that might be in the waters and might pose a threat to the shipping. but now you have the tankers that are waiting outside the harbor. first of all, you have to get the barges to them, then you have to go through the long process of pumping all the gas and oil from the tankers to the barges. then they have to get back in here to the terminals. but nonetheless, governor cuomo of new york said nobody panic, help is coming. listen. >> there is no reason to panic. there's no reason for anxiety. this is -- we understand why there was a shortage

, and one of the topics that came up quite a bit was the attacks on the u.s. embassy and while those of us here that might obviously highlight the need for the securities sector reform i feel like a lot of tunisian actors interpret things very different and to some the less says that we need stronger security forces and that some of the changes, some of the modest changes we might see as positive and the very modest direction of the reform over the past year are seen by some as a cause for the week security forces and the call for incidents like the attacks on the embassies. if you can comment on this tension and how to address that. >> the iron fist notes the outrage. you want to jump in on this? >> sure. i mean, first of all i would sort of like to the secure a sector reform and egypt would weaken the security service more than it already is because there's been very little security sector reform as i don't see evidence of that. but also some of these the assumption that you are necessarily going after the leaders inside the security sector or security sector reform i think is a misconce

[ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with n

that tuesday. then on friday afternoon, i received word that the u.s. supreme court had granted a review on a petition by governor bush at the time to review the decision that we had made on the 21st. we had also had a crucial decision in the matter that we had made on thursday, thanksgiving day, having to do with the miami dade county recount. host: that decision was? guest: that we denied a petition for the court to order the canvassing board to continue a recount. canvassing board had made a decision on the wednesday night before thanksgiving to not continue at their account because they determine that there was not enough time within our extended deadline in which to continue and vote and we count the votes in miami dade county. they had sorted some 14,000 votes out that they considered had not been counted by the machines. getgore team treid ied to the court to come in. we cannot overlook the discretion that the canvassing board had decided to not continue the cal. we denied that petition. that was on thursday. the u.s. supreme court the next day granted review and set a briefing sc
'm announcing my decision as to which party, if any i will soothe with in my work here in the u.s. senate. before doing so i would like to outline my thinking on this issue and set out the principles that has guided my decision. in answering this, who will you caucus with question repeatedly with during the campaign, and i emphasize the word repeatedly, i established two basic criteria, that i wanted to maintain my independence as long and as thoroughly as possible, while at the same time being effective in my representation of maine. the first option i considered was whether i could literally go it alone. and not align myself with either party and operate entirely outside of the current partisan structure of the senate. although tempting in many ways, it is become apparent from extensive research into the senate rules and precedents as well as discussions with those familiar with the operations of the senate that this simply wouldn't be practical. and in fact, would severely compromise my ability to be effective on behalf of maine. the principle disadvantage of this go it alone approach

is saying the u.s. economy is strengthening. but he's cautioning that leaders must tackle the looming fiscal cliff. a conversation we can't get away from. speaking in missouri yesterday, bullard also says he doubts the central bank will extend a bond maturity extension program that expires at the end of the year. bullard is not currently a voting member, but he will ebb in 2013. and china's national congress continues with new leaders for the communist party set to be named later this morning. today a rising star said the party is moving towards requiring officials to their their assets. so an interesting piece in the chinese business press this morning. >> we have been talking about the fiscal cliff and -- >> we have? >> and yesterday somebody tweeted a new drinking game. every time they say fiscal cliff, you drink. they're right, but it's absolutely what matters. >> look at the stock market. did you see today what it's going to do? >> down again. >> it was down over 100 yesterday and it couldn't hold up. supposed to be up 70 when were watching yesterday morning. indicated down again. and i
in the way of success. on the day gerald ford became president of the u.s. at a time of national turmoil, this is what he said -- there is no way we can go forward except together. no way anyone can win except by serving the people's urgent needs. we cannot afford to go backward. we must go forward together. so said gerald ford. that is true today as it was back then. today the american people have many urgent needs. they need more jobs. they need economic certainty. they need opportunity and fairness. it is within our power to quickly address the urgent needs. it is one our power to forge an agreement now to middle-class families who can not afford a tax hike. we will ask the richest, most fortunate among us, pay a little extra to reduce the deficit and secure our economic future. it is in our power to push for an agreement that would protect certain tax deductions for families and businesses struggling. it is an hour powerful to forge an agreement to take a balanced approach to reduce spending. we could avert the fiscal cliff for 98% of american families in 97% of small businesses toda
go to the u.s. senate and do exactly what john edwards did, and that will immediately start campaigning to be present. i believe our federal legislators are there to take care of federal business and our state legislatures, to be in our -- federal legislators ought to be down in our state, sending dollars to the state, and not sending them to the federal government to have federal legislators play a large game of twister to get the best position. host: bob cusack? guest: the caller mentioned term limits, and it was something mitt romney embraced, and the republicans on capitol hill have not embraced that, and neither have the democrats. it was talked about in the newt gingrich era, but both republicans and democrats are not fond of term limits. there is an argument against it, and that is when members get here, they promised to term- limit themselves, and when they get here they do not know how to legislate, they do not know where the bathrooms are, and just like anything they get experience and better at it, and they break the term-limit pledge. term limits will be discusse
of the events on the attacker the u.s. consulate have been riddled with discrepancies starting soon after the american dead and survivors led behind a charged compound and the bullets guard cia building in benghazi. how confident are you in the white house team? president obama defended yesterday amid criticism he received for poor performance given the issue. let's take a listen to some of the criticism that has been employed. this is on the senate floor yesterday. john mccain called for the select committee to investigate the attacks. [video clip] >> why is it that anybody including our ambassadors to the united nations would believe spontaneous demonstrations are composed of people with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, and heavy weapons? nobody believes that. why did president obama insists that he labeled the defense an act of terrorism on september 12 when we know now -- i repeat, we know now in an interview on the same day he refused to characterize the attacks in this way and spent two weeks putting the emphasis on a spontaneous protest to a hateful video including in his addres
, and i think we think it's more likely than not that democrats will gain seats in the u.s. senate. that was unthinkable six months ago. it's going to lead to real recriminations inside the republican party about who made these mistakes and getting these candidates and failing to get people like todd akin out of these races and get electable republicans into these races that they have to be able to win. >> if you look at senate republicans other the last four cycles, they've been pummeled. in 2006 democrats weren't supposed to pick up the senate, they did. in 2008 they expanded to a 60-seat majority, they were able to get health care done as a result of the pickup that they had. in 2010 you had republicans have an opportunity to pick up the senate, they fell short. and now again a huge opportunity this year to pick up the senate, and it looks like they might actually fall backwards because of these races you're talking about, massachusetts, indiana and missouri. i think one of the things that we've learned over the last couple of cycles is when republicans talk about the economy as
of documents belonging to john allen. he's denied any wrong doing. a u.s. official tells nbc news that the documents could connect general allen to jill kelley. she's the same woman whose original complaint about harassing e-mails set off the initial investigation. e-mails that multiple law enforcement sources tell nbc was traced back to this woman, paula broadwell. she's admitted to an affair with dvp dp. last night fbi agents searched paula broadwell's home, the home she shares with her family. she had given them permission to go into the home. they took out boxes and apparently photo es. joining me now is jim frederick, editor at "time" magazine. i heard people joke about this and all the salacious titles. but at the heart of this are some serious and legitimate conce concerns. the president not making any huge pronouncements, but starting with general allen here, the e-mails were exchanged over a two-year span. his confirmation is being held up. that's a big deal. >> it's a huge deal. the story is changing by the hour. every hour there are new allegations as pertains to genera
alluded to, also jane harman, former u.s. representative, now head of the woodrow wilson international center for scholars, former chair of the house intelligence committee, i believe. and also, john brennan, homeland security advisor to president obama. talk to us about who may be stepping in to fill the shoes of general petraeus. guest: well, you know, morell is considered sorted of the most likely candidate because, you know, having been the deputy director, he could relatively easily just step in to the directorship, very, very intimately familiar with the agency. the other people are all possibilities, but you need to remember that intelligence jobs have been a little bit hard for the obama white house to fill recently. you had director of national intelligence, jim clapper, nominated some time ago to run the overall intelligence operation and it was reportedly very difficult for the white house to find somebody to take that job. it was reportedly offered to several other people before clapper finally took it. so it would be interesting to see who would be on the list to do this.
as a dismal failure certificate is drawn. just curious about your reaction to that. >> u.s. to take these first? >> a dismal failure part i think will be on the right to find us a dismal failure. it was about as dismal a failure as john kerry. their racism the difference between romney losing in bush winning, with just a slight demographic shift in the country from 2004 to 2012. looking not where the republicans go, again, i think the best way to approach a is to try to figure out how you deal with a group -- the key groups. if you done better among women and with the help of todd akin and richard murdoch, you look in their small part. immigration is gearing to the right on immigration and his unwillingness to have a discussion with the voters. with african-american voters and ronnie doesn't have anything to do with this. all the talk about voter suppression for democrats trying to cheat, just increase the turnout tremendously among african-american voters. >> two parts. one of the primary and one in the general that i thought really? the first would be the debate in which he sittin
any talking points at all to susan rice the u.s. ambassador. and, i'm sorry, the u.n. ambassador for the u.s. and says he almost knew meadely that this was a terror attack. what he tells congress behind closed doors today should be interesting to shedding some very credible light on what happened there. he was in charge at the time. visited, recently, even after, this whole scandal was coming to light. so fascinating to be a fly on that wall today should be interesting. >> he is reportedly very eager to disseminate information and the discovery over in libya and to share the time line of events as well. >> indeed. we'll stay on top of that. >>> fighting between israel and palestinians has come to a temporary halt. israeli officials agreed to stop the wave of air strikes on gaza while the egyptian prime minister visits. >>> there is hope that egypt's leader will be able to broker some sort of truce between hamas and the israelis. earlier nearly 100 missiles landed in gaza, bringing the death toll there to 19. >>> a record settlement for the worst environmental disaster in u.s. his

, it will be a combination of guard and reserve and u.s. army reserve -- i mean, guard and reserve and u.s. army and active. there are characteristics that are important. people have been confused with what has been going on in the last five years and what we want in the future. in my mind, what happened in iraq and afghanistan is exactly how we designed it to happen. the active component responding initially was able to get things a establish, and then as we needed more depth, we were able to move into the national guard and reserve. that worked very well we are way more organized now in the army. there are some national guard and reserve units that have to be ready to deploy very quickly. those tend to be combat service support outfit that require much less trading capability. the guard and reserves issue is time, not money, but time. they only have so much time to sustain regiments. the characteristic of an active deployment is ready, and to maintain a level of readiness that they can respond to over a longer time frame. as i go through this, i have to balance that and decide what i need as they go forw
